To describe the exploratory use of short decision support tools for patients, called Option Grids. Option Grids are summary tables, using one side of paper to enable rapid comparisons of options, using questions that patients frequently ask (FAQs) and designed for face-to-face clinical encounters. To date, most evidence about ‘patient decision aids’ has been based on tools with high content levels, designed for patients to use independently, either before or after visits.
